    1. This is a fine book for a someone getting a first taste of the crusades. Since I can’t seem to keep them straight, it was a good read for me. Very broad and basic.


    2. I first read this when I was a young teen. I re-read it as part of my prep for writing a college paper on the crusades. I read a lot of the original sources and noted that West had some of his fairly minor facts wrong according to people that were there and wrote about the events. Good for younger readers. Adults should probably find something more mature.


    3. For someone looking for a very brief, simple history of the Crusades, this is the book to read. Gives a lot of information briefly hitting with broad brush strokes the images of the Crusades. With as much bumbling and problems that occurred during the Crusades according to this author, you wouldn't think that the Middle East would still be infuriated by the Western World.


    4. Most of what I know about history I learned from Gibbon, Macaulay, Tacitus, and Landmark Books. Of those, I read the Landmark Books first, so they made the deepest impression. Probably that explains a lot.And, yes, it's that Anthony West.


    5. Worthwhile read as it was written before political correctness. Seems a pretty fair depiction to what actually happened. Christian Crusaders lost much in their efforts and to me it seemed more politically motivated to regain territory but not true in all cases. There was more than one Crusade.
